Take the pinch bolts out of the lower knuckle. The jack the strut up enough so the pinch bolt can go back in and the locating tab rest on top of the pinch bolt. Use some never seize on the pinch bolt threads and shoulder when reinstalling.

I did that once for a customer and it does a fine job in raising the rear end.

If you raise the strut an inch it will rasie the car an inch.

Cool. Are there any other good options to raise the rear end more than 1"? 1" might be close to enough, but I want to keep my options open.

I could easily raise mine another inch. Depends on how much strut you have sticking out the bottom.

Maybe. It will slightly push the load to wards the outside edge. Look at how the tires are wearing now and determine from there.
